In a global effort to raise awareness about blindness and vision impairment, World Sight Day is observed every second Thursday of October. Marking the occasion, the World Health Organization Vision and Eye Care Programme has launched WHOeyes, a free app aimed at assessing both near and distance visual acuity. WHOeyes also serves as an education resource delivering valuable insights on eye protection.

“The WHOeyes app is a perfect complement to World Sight Day activities happening globally. The app, much like the Love Your Eyes campaign, promotes proactive eye care which is a vital step towards addressing the huge unmet vision needs on a global scale.

– Stuart Keel, Technical Officer, Vision and Eye Care Programme, WHO
